When Charlie Cox was given the chance to portray Daredevil in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was ‘over the moon‘. From the Netflix universe, his is the only character Kevin Feige has accepted into the larger mythos of the MCU. However, the project has been facing many challenges.

The series shoot was supposed to start in 2023 and end by the year-end. But with the actors’ and writers’ strike, the shoot was stopped in mid-production. During this, Feige and other Marvel executives had a creative flare leading to letting go of the old team and hiring new writers and directors, with much of the already shot content being cut down to embrace the new storyline.

And now Cox has revealed his major concern regarding the character. In an interview with NME, he stated he cannot keep playing the character for long,


“How much longer at my age can I play the lead in a superhero film or TV show? Not very long, probably. I don’t remember the last time I didn’t have any [physical] issues. My shoulder’s done. My knees are in bad shape. My back’s gone.”

With the shoot being delayed and Cox’s statement, it would be interesting to see how the series pans out and how long will it run. But for now, the actor is fully determined to nail his role again.
